Scaling limits and effective equations for large particle systems

Prof. Dr. Mario Pulvirenti talk

Speaker invited by: Prof. Dr. Benjamin Schlein

Date: 19.02.15  Time: 18.15 - 19.15  Room: Y27H35/36

In this talk I review the various scaling limits (i.e. mean-field, weak-coupling and low-density) in which the various kinetic equations (Vlasov, Landau and Boltzmann) are expected to be valid, discussing the few rigorous results obtained up to now.
